Memorial Day, a time to honor those who died while serving in the U.S. military, falls on May 30 this year. For many, it’s also an occasion for friends and family to get together, fire up the grill, and share some delicious dishes.

Watermelon, hot dogs, and macaroni salad might be favorites on your menu. Or you may find inspiration from Milk Street‘s Christopher Kimball and his spicy lamb burgers and South Asian chapli kebabs this year. If cooking isn’t your thing, ordering out is always an option. Clover Food Lab is offering Memorial Day boxes that include a variety of summer salads, grilled chickpea burgers, and desserts, like zucchini bread.
